Full of flavour and a strong hardy grower, broad beans like a rich, well dug soil but most soils will give a satisfactory crop. Broad beans provide a fantastic source of vitamin C, folate and fibre and are ideal for deep freezing. Plant Height: 1m
Prepare double rows 30cm apart, 5cm deep, sowing seeds 25cm apart. Pinch out the top of the plants when pods are 7-10cm long. This will encourage an earlier crop of well filled pods.
